Spider-man Reboot

I'm sure you've heard by now, but in case you haven't; There won't be a Spider-man 4 once Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire walked out of the project. So what we'll have instead is The Amazing Spider-man [2012].

Fan-made by Editninja, not the actual movie poster...
Not to let a successful franchise go to waste, they decided to give it a reboot with actor Andrew Garfield  as Spidey and Marc Webb as the director.

Probably best remembered so far for his role in The Social Network [2010]
Frankly I don't know what to expect, I mean I'm hardly the biggest Spider-man fan out there. Which is why the notion that it will be more faithful with its comic books did little to excite me. It does however look kind of promising with other actors like Martin Sheen and Sally Field joining the cast. Plus, with the Spidey makeover, it gives the impression that Marc Webb's Spider-man is going to be darker and grittier.

Other differences;

1. No Mary Jane this time around. Instead, Emma Stone will be playing Gwen Stacy, a character played previously by Bryce Dallas Howard in Spider-man 3 [2007].
2. The Lizard will be the villain for this movie.
